Did You Know. . .
The name “Taj Mahal” means “crown of palaces” and it took around 22,000 labourers from 1632 until 1653 to finish the construction.
In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While the white domed, marble mausoleum is the most familiar component of the Taj Mahal, it is actually an integrated complex of structures.
